"We received, fortunately, the good news that his brain is alive," Emilio Carrasquel, a Mariners scout, told the website. "It is a slight, very slight, sign that there is hope. I have been here since Friday and (Monday) we heard good news."
Although he is still unconscious, Sanchez is showing more positive signs he will wake from his coma.
The EEG will determine Sanchez's brain activity. He remains in critical condition after being involved in a boating incident Feb. 15.
Sanchez underwent a craniectomy after he was struck by a boat's propeller while swimming. He's been able to move both his arms and legs in recent days, though still may require additional surgery. The Mariners have confirmed that Sanchez was hospitalized following the incident, but have not commented on his status recently.
The reports from Lavinotinto.com state Sanchez underwent a craniectomy (a removal of a portion of the cranium) and a drainage of hematomas (collections of blood outside of blood vessels).
While the Mariners have confirmed the 20-year-old Sanchez was hospitalized after the accident, they did not offer an update on his status Monday. Although, the Mariners remain limited by federal health reporting laws.
The full extent of Sanchez's injuries is unknown, but he is in the Intensive Care Unit. While pitching at Double-A last season, Sanchez went 7-6 with a 4.19 ERA over 23 starts.
